Odessa Police arrest security guard in illegal gambling room www.privateofficer.com
Roberto Antonio Rios, 25, has been arrested. According to an arrest affidavit, Rios was a security guard at an eight-liner game room on Andrews Highway in Odessa — across the street from the Ector County Coliseum.
That game room was one of five that were raided earlier this month, after undercover police officers say they saw illegal gambling going on there.
Police say that Rios was protecting the gambling activities and keeping an eye on gamers while on the job.
Now, Rios is charged with engaging in organized criminal activity to commit gambling promotion. At least 15 people have been arrested in the gambling bust so far
